Group/One Time/Corporate Volunteering

The Arboretum has over 750 volunteers that provide nearly $600,000 in value on an annual basis. We encourage organizations  to bring in groups to volunteer for events and projects, and we also strongly support individual employees to donate their time and talent to the Arboretum. Organizations can work closely with the Volunteer Coordinator to make experiences meaningful. The Arboretum welcomes groups of volunteers from local businesses, churches, civic groups and other social organizations.

No experience is necessary!

Opportunities include:

  • Gardening: planting, mulching, weeding, buckthorn removal, harvesting
  • Building cleanup
  • Education program preparation activities
